Sheep Shearing & Herding
May 26 - May 27
Join us for sheep shearing, a spring tradition at the Billings Farm and throughout Vermont. Watch as our Southdown ewes shed their heavy winter fleece with the help of our sheep shearer, who will demonstrate hand shearing, hand-powered clippers, and today’s electric shears. A special treat: watch as Border Collies follow commands and their instincts to herd sheep in the farm fields. Hands-on wool activities.
